This class is for teen-adult beginning/intermediate acting. I pioneered 2 private Arts Academies in drama and film for 6 years, and am now teaching acting and directing full time with private lessons and gigs. My goal is to help students become well-rounded in all the areas that are needed to truly become a working actor. These areas include: auditioning, theater, film, and improvisation.

Being a repertory performer for Silver Star Playhouse (musical theater parodies), and having lots of experience and training in improv and interactive dinner theaters really trains you in comedy.
My husband also owns Soundwaves Productions (technological advanced studio in Gilbert)- so completing remote voiceover work for a reel is not out of the question.

I also encourage students to pair in duos for effective scene work and more in-depth technique training (this will also split your lesson cost in half).

I am a director who has made more than 700 television commercials, including three spots for the Superbowl I have won numerous award at Cannes, Clios, and AICP Awards. My skills are in acting for TV commercials, and preparing for auditions. A commercial script is not very obvious. I can help an actor to reveal wha is in the script and how to prepare the role for an audition. After twenty-five years makin ads, I can also offer advice about how to handle an audition, and the protocols for the director and ad agency once in the room. Defining what is essential for a audition for tv commercials--creating a character, varying interpretations, and the understanding of what is expected from the actor are all things I can help you with.

About Jonathan

My pride is directing performance-based drama worked out in hundreds of commercials I’ve directed for leading agencies in North America and abroad. Starting with the BBC for eight years as a documentary filmmaker, I favor careful observational, casting, and performance to mine the subtleties of hum

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

Jeremy does a great job with our 11yo son, who was furious when he found out I’d booked him acting lessons to help him with a drama he is currently involved in. Today he was smiling and grinning and trying out different voices for fun! Thank you, Jeremy!

"Gina is extremely knowledgeable in her craft. I took a wide variety of acting classes taught by her over the span of three years when I was in college, and they are among the most beneficial classes I've had the opportunity to take. She is very clear in her teaching, focusing not only on acting technique, but going through all the survival skills she has accumulated throughout her years working in the industry. By the time I finished the last class I took with her, I felt well-equipped to handle the acting industry! I would recommend Gina to anyone wanting to learn about acting and working in the film industry."

"Ms. Rebecca has been a phenomenal teacher! I am so grateful for everything she has taught me. She has a well rounded teaching style that pulls inspiration from both renowned teachers of the past (Stanislavsky, Adler, Meisner, etc.) and themes found in our current events (politics, pop culture, etc.) She has trained me in anything and everything from the basics of stage acting, improv, film, script writing, and even how to method act safely. I have been awarded multiple Superior marks while competing under her teaching and am now working in my community theatres thank to her preparation. In her classes, I not only grew as an artist, but as a person as well. I honestly couldn’t recommend her more!"

Kelsey is awesome and really good at explaining techniques and also making sure you understand them. She's patient and encouraging. I know I still have so much left to learn and I'm really looking forward to it! She's very knowledgeable and you can tell she has a true passion for acting."
